Harry and Meghan warned by Native Americans about using ‘holy water’ to irrigate garden



Harry and Meghan warned by Native Americans about using ‘holy water’ to irrigate garden


A Native American tribe is worried that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are irrigating their Montecito home’s garden with “holy water” and has urged the pair not to do so.

The Duke and Duchess’ house is supposedly constructed on territory previously inhabited by the Chumash tribe — and the natives’ head is reportedly concerned that they will use holy water to irrigate their gardens.

There are numerous hot and cold springs in the region, as well as a network of subterranean rivers from which people get water.

Eleanor Fishburn, 60, the tribe’s head, has advised the couple not to irrigate their gardens with water from those sources. “For us, this water is pure water, holy water and ceremonial water. As a native population, it is sacred for us and the idea that people in the area are using water from springs to water their gardens is something that doesn’t sit well with us,” she told the Sun.

The tribe’s Barbareno-Ventura branch head asked the couple to meet with them to explore options.

“It would be great if they came so we could explain our history and culture and let them know about how sacred the water is to us,” she said.


“It would be good to explain to them that if they are using the water to irrigate their garden, they have an alternative choice.”

Human bones were found on an estate near Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s house in Montecito last month when land workers were gardening. Although the precise location of the body has not been revealed, it is said to be only 350 yards from the home. It was claimed at the time that the bones might be centuries old. According to the Sun, they were discovered up to three feet down in the soil and are thought to belong to a Native American who lived in the region about 700 AD. Santa Barbara County officials verified the finding had nothing to do with Harry and Meghan.

According to a source, “Work stopped right away on the property and the cops were called in.”

“It’s quite a lot of drama for a place like Montecito.”

The tribe used to dwell around the California coastlines.

An inquiry will be started, according to Raquel Zick, a spokesperson for the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office. “We will have to get out our magnifying glasses,” she added.

Santa Barbara County officials said the finding had nothing to do with Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said last year that the Commonwealth “must acknowledge the past,” even if it is “uncomfortable.”

The Duke of Sussex has returned to Frogmore ahead of the unveiling of Princess Diana’s statue.

When the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle appeared on Oprah Winfrey in March, they sparked the British monarchy’s biggest crisis in decades.
